Dayton Youth Radio

Dayton Youth Radio

Since 2011, WYSO's Community Voices training program has been putting local voices on the air, giving people the time and space to tell their own stories, in their own words, without commercial interruptions. In 2014, we expanded the program to include local high school students, and Dayton Youth Radio was born. Dayton Youth Radio teaches broadcasting and storytelling skills to about 45 teenagers annually, guiding each student's story from the classroom to the WYSO airwaves. Dayton Youth Radio gives local high school students a voice. And as the future of Dayton, they have a lot to say.

Participating high schools include David H Ponitz CTC, Dayton Early College Academy DECA, Dayton STEM Academy, The Miami Valley School, Tecumseh High School, Yellow Springs High School, Centerville High School, Stivers School of the Arts, Springfield STEM Academy, Springfield High School, Springfield School of Innovation, and Thurgood Marshall Career Academy

The Virginia W. Kettering Foundation and the Ohio Arts Council support Dayton Youth Radio.
